Langham Island Workday – Kankakee County

January 28 @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm

Restore ecological health to the island of rare plants!  Participate in eco-restoration volunteering year-round on Langham Island, on Thursdays and Saturdays of alternating weeks.  

Whenever the river is not passable, we work at our alternate site, a sand savanna within Kankakee River State Park, a walking distance from Parking Area A (Archery Range).

We ask that you RSVP so that we can be in touch in case there are location and other changes. 


We meet at Island View Parking Lot in Kankakee River State Park, 9:30 – 9:45. We work until 2:00. 

Bring lunch, water, and leather work gloves. 

Rubber boots can be helpful if you have them, for getting in and out of the boat.

Things to know before you come:

  • If you are not fully vaccinated, wear a mask if unable to social distance from others at the site.
  • Bring water and a snack. Dress for the wilderness – this should include sturdy boots or shoes, a hat, bug spray, and sunscreen. Long pants and a long sleeve shirt are suggested.
  • We work hard, but at our own pace, and we often take breaks to share snacks and share ideas and nature with each other.

If you are attending a workday at a nature preserve owned by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, please complete and bring the IDNR Volunteer Waiver to the workday when you attend.
